A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

The Springfield Delco lacrosse season nearly ended before it ever truly began. At 1-5 in April, the Cougars could have devolved into finger-pointing, blame-shifting, and chaos. Instead, the season ended with the school's first boys' state lacrosse championship since 1992. Saturday afternoon at West Chester East, Springfield Delco held off an at times shorthanded and disjointed La Salle squad, 4-3. "A dream come true," said senior attacker Mike Gerzabek, who led all scorers with three goals.

Springfield Delco goaltender James Spence has grown up with no shortage of willing shooters to help develop his skill set. Perhaps that is why the junior Lehigh recruit has helped the Cougars advance to the PIAA boys' lacrosse championship for the first time since 1992. The threat of inclement weather has pushed Saturday's girls' finale between Radnor and Conestoga to 10 a.m. at West Chester East. In Game 2, Spence will lead the Cougars against Catholic League champion La Salle.

District 3 runner-up Manheim Township took an early 2-0 lead over District 12 champion La Salle in Tuesday's PIAA state semifinal lacrosse matchup at Exeter Township High School in Reading. But the Explorers roared back and scored 10 straight goals to win, 10-2, and set up a PIAA state final meeting with Springfield (D) at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday at West Chester East. "We called a timeout right after they scored the second goal and decided we had to put more pressure on their guys," said La Salle midfielder Austin Clibanoff, who just graduated and is headed to Lehigh to play lacrosse.

Sometimes all it takes is a look. Quality defense helps, too. La Salle High had it all working Wednesday in a boys' lacrosse thriller against Bishop Shanahan. The PIAA first-round playoff game at Plymouth Whitemarsh needed extra time to decide a winner. Fortunately for the Catholic League champion Explorers, Brett Baskin netted the game-winner with 2 minutes, 29 seconds left in overtime to give La Salle an 8-7 victory. The goal was set up by a defensive deflection by senior long-pole Matt Webster, which allowed fellow senior Jared Walls to scoop the loose ball, find Baskin, and head for glory.

Palumbo Academy's Mia Van Wagenen, a native of Denmark, is in the final stages of a foreign-exchange year. She says it's been "quite the experience" moving from a rural town outside of Copenhagen to the lively and eclectic South Street Headhouse District. "It's very, very different," Van Wagenen said. "There's always people out and about and things going on. It's a whole new world. " No longer a wide-eyed sophomore, the 16-year-old set a state qualifying standard with a fourth-place showing in the Class AAA one-mile run at the PIAA District 12 track and field championships Thursday afternoon at Benjamin Johnston Memorial Stadium.

HELLERTOWN, Pa. - In his most recent visit to Silver Creek Country Club before the U.S. Open local qualifying tournament, P.J. Acierno of La Salle braved cold and windy conditions to win individual honors at last month's Lafayette Invitational. Acierno, a redshirt junior, returned to the Lehigh Valley layout in similar conditions Monday and again found success. He fired a 4-over-par 75 to pick up one of six tickets for next month's sectional stage of qualifying for the U.S. Open.

The boys' 100-meter finals at the Catholic League track and field championships on Saturday afternoon included several sprinters who also excel on the gridiron. La Salle receivers Charles Headen and Winston Eubanks, West Catholic receiver Jameer Bryson, and St. Joseph's Prep tailback D'Andre Swift were part of the top-notch field. Headen leaned in at the end and claimed gold at Cardinal O'Hara with a clocking of 10.88 seconds. Bryson (11.07), Eubanks (11.11), and Swift (11.17) were next in line.

Matthew Webster comes from exceptional lacrosse stock, but the La Salle High senior defenseman hasn't always believed in his own abilities on the field. Saturday afternoon against visiting Radnor, however, Webster's defensive prowess helped limit one of the nation's top talents and secure a 6-1 victory for the Explorers. The defending PIAA champion Red Raiders were led by senior Jack Wilson, a University of Maryland recruit, who netted the game-winning goal in overtime last season to give Radnor its first state title.
